Shizuka continued walking; however, after a few minutes, her eyes started hurting. The sun was blinding her. Because of this, Shizuka bumped into a person as she was walking.

Genessa looked at the girl that bumped into her, expressionless. The crystal ball rolled out of her hand and dropped to the ground, not shattering, but only cracking. Ah, well. There's a spare in the wagon.
She observed that the girl looked sun dazed and placed her hands on the girl's shoulders and lead her inside the wagon. It was darker in there, with only candles providing light. Genessa sat the girl down on a chair, then sat across from her.
"You look lost," she started off, her voice low and monotone. "But you have reached a fork in your life's road. Shall I lay out your options?" Genessa said the words she always started off with when speaking to customers.

Shizuka blinked. Her vision was becoming more clear because it was darker inside. "My options?" she asked in a weak voice.

"Yes, what is it that you want to do?" Genessa asked, folded her hands and resting her chin upon them. She tried to be as mysterious and vague as possible while extracting enough personal information from the girl, as was her usual plan. "Do you know what kind of shop this is?"

Shizuka shook her head. "No."

"I can show you your life's options. The road divides up here, and the choices you'll make will determine the final outcome. In other words," Genessa paused for effect. "This is a fortune telling shop."
From what she's observed, Genessa noted that the girl sitting across from her was not of this land and was someone of a high rank, judging by her clothes.
"Are you in need of my service?" she asked.

(( -cough- Corny. Corny. Corny. But this is good practice for testing out whether I should include this type of personality in the story I'm making. So yes, bear with it XD Personally, I'm not attached to any of these new characters I've made so RPing with them and trying to stay in character is hard. Derp ))

Shizuka was confused, especially since she was oblivious to the outside world. "Fortune telling? Tell me my fortune," she ordered.

Genessa deemed that the girl was new to this line of business. Wordlessly, she took out a deck of tarot cards from a wooden case and shuffled them expertly. She proceeded to cut the deck and lay seven cards out on a row, face down.

Shizuka continued to watch as the girl laid down the cards skillfully.

Genessa breathed deeply, in and out, making her mind clear as a new sheet of parchment. She stared off distantly and turned over the card farthest on the left.
“You are… The Queen of Swords,” Genessa spoke. “Her stoic and sarcastic personality and bitter tone of voice make her someone uncomfortable to be around. She is keen in telling truths apart from lies.”
Genessa revealed the next two cards, Temperance and the Knight of Pentacles. “Temperance… do you have a shaky relationship with others? It is highly necessary that your bonds with others are strong, lest you want to bring upon your own destruction. Perhaps this refers to your relationship with the Knight of Pentacles? He is a person in your life with various duties and responsibilities that he feels the need to see it through.”
She uncovered the next two cards. This combination sparked an interest in Genessa. The Devil's card stared back at her mockingly, and the King of Cups looked, as usual, like he was keeping something secret. Quite a dark combination indeed. “The Devil and King of Cups. This combination is a warning to beware of the person in your life. The King of Cups is not who he appears to be on the surface; he is hiding dark secrets.” Genessa wondered what kinds of secrets were being hidden. She believed everything affected everyone. Hopefully, the secrets won’t shake up the world.
Finally, Genessa turned over the last two cards: Justice and the Seven of Cups. “A time will come when you will need to make a difficult decision. You will be torn between duty to society and duty to yourself. You can only chose one or the other, there is no in between. You’ll satisfy one need, disappoint another. But in the end, the final choice that you make will bring you the most happiness.” Genessa concluded the fortune telling with that.

Shizuka was confused but she surely didnt show it. She was shortly thinking about what the cards meant. After a few seconds, Shizuka stood up and stubbornly said, "This is foolish. Those are just cards. They cannot possibly tell what the future brings." Shizuka headed for the exit.

"Perhaps..." Genessa answered, packing up the Tarot cards. "But I'm sensing that the Arcana's influence over you is a bit stronger than it is on others. As your payment, do me this: Remember my words when the time to make that difficult situation comes." She stood up and walked over to the wooden chest, placing the deck back inside. "Good bye. We are fated to meet again, though perhaps not in this lifetime."

Shizuka ignored what the girl with the Tarot cards said. She put her hood on and walked outside.
Shizuka wasnt sure what else to do. She didnt want to go back yet because she wasnt sure when she'd be able to explore again. Shizuka figured that she wouldnt be able to easily sneak in the train again so she decided to continue walking around Sempara. However, this time, she kept her hood on to protect herself from the sun so she wouldnt bump into things again.
